If you are looking for an exciting new resource that you can use with TY students during the 2021/2022 academic year, look no further.  

The BFiresafe@schoolFire> Education Programme is free, easy to use, requires no previous knowledge, and is supported by an extensive bank of resources which will provide you with everything that you need in order to deliver the programme easily and efficiently.  

There are 10 Units in total, but you can pick and choose which units you cover to suit your time allocation and the interests of your students.  The programme was piloted in Ireland and has been created using the expertise of Fire Personnel under the direction of Mr Finian Joyce, Chief Fire Officer, Leitrim County Council, with guidance from Ms. Caroline McHale (Education Consultant).

The Units available include the following: 

Unit 1: Managing Myself 

Unit 6: Fire Safety in the Home 

Unit 2: Fire Science 

Unit 7: Fire Safety in Schools 

Unit 3: Fire Safety Indicators 

Unit 8: Fire Safety in your Environment 

Unit 4: Case Studies 

Unit 9: Emergency Action Plans 

Unit 5: Calling the Emergency Services.  

Unit 10:Careers in Fire 

The Programme offers plenty of opportunities for active learning and the use of digital technology. Students complete a short online assessment at the end of each unit and certification is available.

It is available in 10 languages and is being adopted in schools across Europe, which offers exciting opportunities for collaboration using Etwinning.  The programme is cross curricular in nature with links to Science and Career Guidance. It could also be a very valuable addition to a school Wellbeing Programme. So please spread the word within your school.

If you wish to get some sense of what the programme is about, check out the BFireSafe@school website at where you can register as a teacher and view the content.
